European community 🤗 Diaries from the road ❤️🚐
“Meet Lukas, Valeria and Moose from northern Italy. @moose_ontheroad @lukasunterholzner@the_travely
It was June. About 4 years ago. It was a pretty windy day in Iceland when they fell deeply in love. With that vanlife. With the freedom to go wherever they want. The freedom to explore places people without their own vehicle would never see. The freedom to stay at those places how long they want, because they have their home with them.
Since that windy day in Iceland their life changed a lot. They quit their jobs, sold their stuff and went on a worldtrip. 80.000km all around the world. From South America to the North Cape. From California to the Australian Outback. Just the two of them and a rolling tiny home.
After 10 months they returned to Italy, but the love for that Vanlife was even deeper. They bought a nearly 30 years old silver colored truck and called her Moose. "To be honest, it was love at first sight." Together with Moose they explored some pretty adventurous places like the Moroccan Sahara and the unspoiled Albanian mountains. "And to be honest, we can‘t wait for all the adventures yet to come!" Their hearts beat for that vanlife. For the sunsets. And the fire places. For the lonely wild camping spots. For nature. And wide open skies. For the hidden gems and the bumpy gravel roads with no names..
For them and also for us, vanlife doesn’t mean just camping.
It means freedom.”
We are so happy to have @stefunny_k on our Vanlife Diaries team representing the European road tripping community and starting to share these stories from our amazing European community and connecting you all! #vanlifediaries we are an international family full on inspiring stories

Our latest ‘Vanlife Diaries’ feature is with @alystg from Quebec, Canada. Link in profile for the full story and photos of how Alys converted a 1986 Chevy Van over a year into a beautiful rolling home with her boyfriend Fred. They then hit the road with their dog Dubby and cat Luce who were stray animals they gave a home and feel so much love from them as they explore North America at the moment. “This old van made me smile the very first time I met her. I was at that moment in my life, trying to make a decision between school or traveling and I decided to give myself the most amazing gift I could get. Buying this old rig and explore the western parts of America by myself, with my precious puppy, Dubby.” Read more to find out how Alys met Fred and vanlife adventures began. All photos by @alystg This diary has been edited and published by Jonny Dustow @dustybootsmusic one of the team here at Vanlife Diaries #vanlifediaries we feel privileged to share your inspiring diaries from the road

This is a personal thank you post to @jessdeal & @ry_house34 from @makingmyths who opened up their rad rolling home to help @dustybootsmusic (one of our Vanlife Diaries team from Australia) with a lift across part of America after our awesome Teton Vanlife Gathering with @van.project Our community constantly help each other out on the road and it’s been so good to see it in action no matter where we travel and hold gatherings we help each other with rides, emotional support, creative ideas and tips from our experiences from the road and constantly encourage one another to live life to the full and look after each other and the nature we play in. Swipe right to check out the fun adventures and see how these two have been chasing the snow and creating for @voited a sweet outdoor blanket/poncho brand @jessdeal created whilst living life on the road. And Jess also shares beautiful music playing her violin from the road too! All photos are by these two awesome humans! We love sharing your stories from the road and connecting face to face as often as we can #vanlifediaries we are one beautiful road tripping family around the world
